Heterobimetallic complexes [UO2MoV(CH2L)(hzd)(H2O)2]n, [ZnMoV(CH2L)(hzd)(H2O)2]n and mixed-valence complexes [MoVIO2MoV(CH2L)(hzd)(H2O)2]n (where hzdH3 = inhH3, n = 1; slhH3, n = 2) are synthesized fr om bis(2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde)malonoyldihydrazone (CH2LH4) and monometallic precursor complexes [Mo(CH2LH2)(hzd)]·nH2O (n = 0, 1) in ethanol. The composition of the complexes is established based on the data obtained from the elemental analysis. The structure of the complexes is discussed in the light of data obtained from molar conductance, magnetic moment, electronic, EPR, and IR spectroscopic studies. All complexes have μB values in the range 1.59-1.64 B.M., slightly lower than that required for one unpaired electron. The heterobimetallic complexes show two bands, while mixed-valence complexes show only one band in the visible region assigned to the d-d transition. The g-values decrease in going from uranyl-to-molybdenyl-to-zinc complexes containing the isonicotinoyldiazenido (inh) group, however, no such regular trend is observed in the case of complexes containing the salicyloyldiazenido (slh) group in the coordination sphere. In all complexes, the principal dihydrazone ligand is present in the enol form as a bridging hexadentate ligand in the anti-cis configuration wh ere hydrazide ligands are coordinated to the metal centre as a trinegative bidentate ligand in the diazenido form.
